Choose a song that has meaning to YOU. Don’t worry about anyone else in the room…except for your fiancé, of course. Here, Scott Hornak of Craig Scott Entertainment in Rochelle Park shares some out-of-the-box selections that he’s played for couples recently. “These individualized songs really put a stamp on your wedding,” he says. “Brides and grooms are really looking for individuality.” A handpicked song makes the first dance a memorable moment. “When you can see the bride and groom are in love, and it means so much to them, you remember that,” Hornak says.
